Overview of the Wine
Pierre-Yves Colin was the winemaker for his father's Domaine Marc Colin until 2005. He began his own domaine, first as a micro-négociant operation, focusing on tiny quantities of the finest wines that he can buy. Now he has grown his domaine with the help of family holdings to 70% plots that he owns and 30% grapes he purchases. His holdings are mostly in Chassagne-Montrachet (where the domaine is located) but he also produces multiple bottlings of Meursault, St. Aubin, and Puligny-Montrachet. Pierre-Yves has rapidly become a star in Cote de Beaune and is now considered one of the pre-eminent young producers of White Burgundy. His choice to use larger demi-muid barrels and eschew the use of battonnage, makes each one of his bottlings a clear expression of its terroir and a study in mineral-driven Chardonnay. Tasting in the Colin-Morey cellar (or anywhere you are lucky enough to have a bottle), is truly a special experience. With each vintage Pierre-Yves continues to prove his enormous talent and we look forward to drinking his years for many years to come!
Grape / Blend
Aromas of pear, white flowers and freshly baked bread introduce the Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Au Bout du Monde, a medium-bodied, charming and incisive wine, its pretty core of fruit underpinned by tangy acids, concluding with a chalky grip.

The Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blanc from PYCM features lovely aromas of grapefruit, lime zest, and fresh white flowers. The texture is light but crisp, and a salty minerality shines through on the palate. The grapes come from three parcels in the Hautes Côtes, named for a nearby nature preserve in Cormot-Vauchignon at over 400 metres elevation—the delayed budbreak at this cool site saved these vines from damage during the frost of 2021. The grapes were fermented in large, older oak casks that have now been racked into tank.
